“I, Hector Louis Berlioz, composer, musician, citizen of France, tell you, in this my last Will and Testament, that my subject is – and always has been – war”. So begins an epic journey through the terrible struggles that Berlioz endured to get his great opera The Trojans performed. He never succeeded and it was not staged complete until twenty-one years after his death 150 years ago in 1869.

Celebrating the life of this great composer, who obtained far greater recognition posthumously than he did during his lifetime, multi-award-winning director Tony Palmer introduces his film which places strong emphasis on the influence that the innovative Berlioz wielded on subsequent generations of musicians.
